NBC fixing The Voice’s audio problems for its finale

Problems with The Voice‘s audio last week that created a delay and/or echo for some viewers will be fixed for its final episodes this week, according to an NBC affiliate. The bad quality was blamed on the surround sound mix.

A representative for NBC’s Tampa/St. Pete affiliate WFLA told the St. Petersburg Times’ Eric Deggans that NBC had “been having issues with the audio and have had complaints from stations and viewers across the country” which “was caused by the way the surround sound was mixed by the show’s ‘audio architect.’ NBC is making the request that the necessary changes be made to correct the situation for next week’s show.”

Complaints about the show’s audio mix last week were, um, voiced on Twitter last week, with viewers complaining and even comparing it to American Idol‘s frequent problems.

The finale begins Tuesday and on Wednesday, one of the four finalists–Javier Colon, Dia Frampton, Vicci Martinez, and Beverly McClellan–will win the show’s prize of $100,000 and a recording contract.
